Make A Wish ...

Hey Stampers, 

Good Morning to ya ! It looks like its gonna be another beautiful day here today. Yesterday was SUPER hot and beautiful, and I even got a sunburn ! Not so nice, but it was fun while I got it !! Hahaha We went on a lovely ATV ride yesterday, and it was just beautiful. We also went out for a delicious dinner ! It was a great anniversary, for sure. I am sharing a really cute birthday card today. I have seen so many cards using candles, that I thought I would try my hand at one ! And I am so pleased with the fun results !! I paired it with some other cute elements as well. Take a look !

Isn't that so cute !? Another bright summers color combo as well - Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral. Love these tropical colors together !! My main stamped layer is a piece of Whisper White measuring 3-3/4" x 5". On the left hand side, I stamped the cute oval chevron image from the Oh Hello set in 1/2 strength Coastal Cabana ink. That means, I stamped my inked up image off once on a piece of scrap paper, so I got a lighter version of the color. Perfect for when you want that COLOR but a shade lighter! For my candle, I used a scrap strip of the Calypso Coral DSP from the Epic Day papers. I also used the Corner Rounder punch to give it a rounded top. I punched out a wing from the Bird Punch in Daffodil Delight for the flame as well - CUTE right !?! I adhered that above my candle with a Dimensional and covered it with some Dazzling Details for a bit of sparkle. I saved the other half of the card for my sentiment ! 

The ADORABLE sentiment is one of my favs EVER. Its from the Make A Wish stamp set, which was in the Spring Catty and then carried over into the new Annual Catalogue. I used my Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight markers to color it in, and stamped it onto my layer. I wanted to try a cute frame to highlight the fun sentiment, so I made one using Coastal Cabana cardstock and the Window Frames Framelits ! I cut the smaller window, and then layered my larger over it and ran it through my Big Shot again. Isn't that a cool effect !! I then adhered it to my layer using some Dimensionals I cut in half. A cut bow using the Calypso Coral Bakers Twine really added another fun details. I added this stamped layer onto a piece of Daffodil Delight measuring 4" x 5-1/4", and then added that to my Coastal Cabana card base with some Dimensionals. Love how it turned out ! 

Thanks so much for dropping by today !! I am so in the summer mood lately, so expect lots of more quick and bright cards ! Something you can make easily in-between barbecues and swimming !! LOL Have a wonderful day and Happy Stamping !!
